Powerhouse litigators David Biderman and Lori Leskin to co-chair ACI's Class Actions Forum

NEW YORK - March 21, 2023 - PRLog -- American Conference Institute (ACI) is pleased to announce that David Biderman (Partner, Firmwide Chair, Consumer Products & Services Litigation, Perkins Coie LLP), and Lori Leskin (Partner, Co-Chair, Consumer Products Practice Group, Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP), will be co-chairing its 2023 Advanced Forum on Defending FDA-Regulated Consumer Products Class Actions, taking place in-person and via livestream May 1-2, 2023, in New York City.

In recent years, the plaintiffs' bar has become increasingly aggressive in targeting food, cosmetic, and dietary supplement companies in class action lawsuits. Often these lawsuits require a large number of resources to defend and are commonly seen as drawn out and implausible as they go well beyond the reasonable consumer standard.

To combat the latest tactics from the plaintiffs' bar, top in-house attorneys from the food, dietary supplement, and cosmetics industries as well as leading litigators from top consumer class action defense firms will gather in New York City this May to brainstorm strategy, and build out the tactical tool kit needed to avoid, oppose, and defend against the latest class action lawsuits.

Highlights of the upcoming event include focus sessions on the connection between consumer groups and the Plaintiff's Bar, defense challenges to class certification that are seeing the most success in these industries, a demand letter response, and successful jurisdiction, standing and preemption arguments.  There will also be a think tank on how MoCRA and the New FTC Health Products Compliance Guidance may affect class action activity. These key sessions are sure to stimulate informative and dynamic conversation about the latest cutting edge defense tactics.

Legal leaders from consumer products companies and law firms recognize this event to be an integral forum for developing knowledge and strategy for the incoming class action offensive, while also offering a space to collaborate with other thought leaders on future trends which may need to be considered.

This event will bring speakers and attendees from big name brands, established and developing legal groups, and industry agencies for what is sure to be one of the most valuable events of the year.
